Ate Marivic’s naturally processed arabica beans won back to back distinctions at the Philippine Coffee Quality Competition (PCQC) in 2018 and 2019. Ate Marivic is a wife, mother, and community leader in the Balutakay Coffee Farmers (BACOFA) Co-operative. Her enthusiasm about coffee farming is contagious, encouraging other women in her community to start working in coffee as well.
She recently bagged first place at the PCQC held in Manila and will be heading to the Coffee Expo in Boston in April 2019 to represent the best coffees of the Philippines.
Being awarded second place at the same competition last year inspired her to continue her pursuit of coffee quality. We are so proud to offer her coffee beans to Vancouver and beyond!
